Grants and Funding

The Greater Grants Program is designed to help build our region by giving community groups a funding source to undertake new or growing initiatives, projects, or events that benefit the Southern Grampians Shire.

Does your community group have a project that needs a little extra funding support to help get it off the ground? The Greater Grants Program could be for you.

How are submissions evaluated?

Grants will be considered for initiatives by eligible community groups that meet the objectives of the Southern Grampians Shire Council Greater Grants Policy.

Greater Grants Policy
